The Cortland Common Council has approved a contract with Chimera for a fire and intrusion monitoring system at the Beaudry Park Building and at the Youth Bureau Offices, and then an access control system at the Beaudry Park Building as well.
Chimera will provide the City of Cortland with updated equipment, services, and monitoring for a lower cost than the previous provider, which has also been sold.
The agreement with Chimera for a fire and intrusion monitoring system will cost $35 a month per building.
The Beaudry Park building will also have the building’s current locks replaced, have an open path smart reader installed, and a control system provided by Chimera. Staff will also be provided training on the new security system. This new system will allow users to be able to access the building and bathrooms only when allowed to based on the schedule and access control system installed on the door.
